Sophisticated mama, don't turn your nose up at me
Sophisticated mama, don't turn your nose up at me
Wish you would think about what you're saying, when you don't agree

You think you knows all answers, ain't got nothing to learn
You think you knows all answers, ain't got nothing to learn
Honey I'm a hard workin' man and I ain't got money to burn

She likes high‑price restaurants, want steaks every day
If she likes high‑price restaurants, want steaks every day
If you were mine pretty baby you'd eat hot dogs any time I say

Baby I'm a barrelhouse man, ain't got time to mess with you
I'm a barrelhouse man, I ain't got time to mess with you
Except what I'd be puttin' down honey that will have to do

Oh somebody take it somewhere now

Baby I'm a barrelhouse man, ain't got time to mess with you
I'm a barrelhouse man, I ain't got time to mess with you
You gotta accept what I be puttin' down, oh baby that'll just have to do

Sophisticated mama, don't turn your nose up at me
Sophisticated mama, don't, don't turn your nose up at me
Why don't you think about what you been saying, when you don't agree

All right, take it away from here
